COACH Solutions and Veson Nautical have announced a new strategic product partnership to integrate COACH Solutions’ functionality with the Veson IMOS Platform (VIP). The partnership will help shipping companies to make data-driven decisions to enhance voyage optimisation capabilities and streamline workflows.

Under the agreement, COACH’s Optimised Weather Routing solution will integrate securely with VIP, providing interested joint clients the ability to seamlessly transfer pertinent information between the two systems without need for redundant data entry. By pulling relevant fleet and vessel data from VIP into COACH Solutions, operators can seamlessly leverage COACH’s vessel performance and weather routing capabilities to make better informed decisions that both improve time charter equivalent rates (TCEs) and reduce CO2 emissions.

“We at COACH are extremely happy to be working jointly with Veson and integrating with their dynamic commercial freight management platform VIP,” said Anders Bruun, CEO of COACH Solutions. “The partnership with Veson gives vessel owners and operators the possibility for utilising best of breed solutions to decarbonise the shipping industry in a profitable way.”

“Sharing data between COACH and VIP gives transparency and assists users in making data driven decisions. Our ambition is to continue turning complex data into actionable insights that not only help decarbonising the industry but also improves the bottom line of our clients.”

As the pace of change and the call to action for greater environmental stewardship continue to hasten, maritime organisations are finding a stronger need for innovative ways to achieve greater efficiency and visibility. Collaborations such as the COACH-Veson product partnership help break down siloes between systems and counterparties, unlocking new process efficiencies and insights that help organisations make the right decisions at the right time.

The product partnership further enhances the value of VIP for Veson’s clients by offering seamless connections to other systems that power their maritime workflow.

Graham Piasecki, director of commercial strategy at Veson Nautical, said: “Having COACH Solutions as a valued member of the Veson Platform Partner Network enables Veson Nautical to expand the value of VIP for our clients by enabling seamless access to COACH’s innovative vessel performance and weather routing capabilities, which users can leverage within the context of their broader operational activities in VIP.”
